Hampton Wick Surgery open 7 days

Did you know that our surgery is one of four GP practices in the borough, called a hub, that currently provides extra appointments from 8am to 8pm every day, including weekends?

Patients continue to contact their surgery in the usual way during practice hours but may be offered a daytime, evening or weekend appointment in the nearest hub to their home. New technology enables electronic access to patient notes so that the GP or nurse (wherever they are) can find out the patient’s medical background.

This initiative is part of a pilot project developed by the Richmond GP Alliance. Our own GP, Dr Kieran O’Flynn has been involved closely with this and comments: “As well as the benefits for patients in seeing a doctor sooner, we hope the new extended hours will relieve some of the pressure on local NHS services, including Kingston and West Middlesex Hospitals, by offering patients another option over the winter months.”

We discovered this news from our surgery’s excellent Patient Participation Group which produces a newsletter full of useful information. If you would like to find out more about the Group, please e-mail ppghamptonwicksurgery@gmail.com or go the Hampton Wick Surgery website: http://www.hamptonwicksurgery.co.uk
